BECKLEY, W.Va. -- Treehouse Arts Ensemble is holding open auditions for a production of John Patrick Shanley's "Doubt" at 6:30 p.m. Jan. 22 and 23 at Tamarack.
The performance dates are March 8 and 9 at Tamarack and March 15-17, 21-24 and 28-30 at the Raleigh Playhouse & Theatre. The auditions will consist of a cold read from the script.
Treehouse Arts will compensate actors with a stipend for a commitment of 25 rehearsals and 12 performances. The company will cast one man and three women. The characters are: Sister Aloysius Beauvier, the rigid, conservative, cynical head nun and principal of St. Nicholas School; Father Brendan Flynn, an articulate and personable, middle-aged priest; Sister James, a young nun and an enthusiastic but inexperienced teacher; and Mrs. Muller, the mother of the first black student at St. Nicholas School.
The play about suspected sexual abuse by the priest won the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for drama and the 2005 Tony Award for best play.
